Happy Birthday Bill


This is for a guy I know
This poem is written just for show
I see you every day at our senior site
You and your mother make my day bright

We've had a lot of laughs through these years
But that's better than a lot of tears
We don't like the same kind of music but that's okay
You have your opera and I like country

Another year has passed
Another birthday came around
You will always be a little older
And I think a little bolder

Have a very happy birthday
That's really what I wanted to say
And be my friend another day

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
